PAUL'S CHURCHYARD, LONDON. DA KIN & COMPANY have much pleasure in announcing that they have appointed Mr. CHARLES NAPPER, Confectioner, ic High-street, Sole Agent for Newport, for the sale of their Royal Patent Coffee. In announcing this appointment, it will be important to point out the excellence and advantages of Dakin's Royal Patent Lottee, and for the purpose of doing so with brevity, the follow- ing copy ot a certificate of Mr. Alfred S. Taylor, and Mr.Arthur j °u If great autllont,es °n Chemistry, Medical Jurisprudence, and the Sanatory question, may suffice We hereby certify that we have chemically examined four varieties of coffee, namely, best Mocha, Jamaica, very fine and good Plantation (Ceylon) Coffee, both in the raw state, and a. prepared and roasted by the Patent Process of Messrs. Dakin. We have likewise chemically examined samples of the same varieties of Coffee. masted at the same time, in the usual way, and the result of this examination is, that in delicacy of flavour, odour, and as an article of diet, the Coffee prepared by Nlessrs. DAKIN'S process is, in our judgment, superior to that prepared in the ordinary way. We have also examined the apparatus used by Messrs. Dakin for roasting Coffee, and we find that all the surfaces with which the Coffee comes in contact during this process, are of Silver. We hnd also that great care is taken so to regulate the degree of heat, and the mode of its application, as to render necessary a longer time and lower temperature to effect the roasting, whereby all risk of charring the berry, or producing empyreumatic od is prevented, the separation of acid vapour is move gradual and complete, and a larger portion of aroma ia re- tained than occurs in the usual methods of Coffee roasting The process of Messrs. Dakin appears to us, therefore, in a chemical view, better adapted than any yet suggested for pro- curing roasted toffes in a pure and wholesome form. "ARTHUR AIKIN, "ALFRED S.
